Chargée de Recherche, IFREMER, LOPS (France)
My research focuses on in situ observations and data analysis of physical and carbon system variables, seeking to better understand the linkages between ocean dynamics and the biogeochemical (oxygen, carbon and nutrient) cycles. My overarching goal is to extend our knowledge of the ocean's role in climate and gain a better representation of the biogeochemical processes at different time-scales, which can contribute, ultimately, to improve model parametrizations and future climate predictions. I am particularly interested in the spatio-temporal variability (seasonal to multidecadal & fine to large scales) of the ocean state and its role as a carbon pump, as well as in the underlying processes driving such variability. I contribute to the ocean observing system by feeding new and existing hydrographic databases (GO-SHIP, mooring-based, Argo) with novel observations. Even though my current focus is the Atlantic Ocean, I am interested in the interplay between the different water masses at a global scale.
